Spare a thought for Forest Green fan Giles Fowler, delayed at Düsseldorf  airport.

In a race against the clock, Giles who moved to Germany last month to live with his girlfriend, is hoping to get to Heathrow in time to drive to the New Lawn.

Giles said: I'm struggling to get back in time, but may make the second-half. I wonder if they will divert the plane to Aston Down, so I can make kick-off."

"It's really touch-and-go to be honest. I may catch the second-half if we take off shortly, but other than that I will have to find a pub in London to watch the game - I'm gutted.
